    How is that as Virgin uses sprint as it is sprints pre pay.. I sell Virgin and have never been told they run on anything other then sprint but i will ask the rep.

    ^I just thought about this.

    Is this gonna mean more phones for AT&T? Are the phone that were exclusive to T Mobile gonna still be available? Is this gonna mean less phones being made now that they are merging?

    Not only Android, but the other mobile OS's (other than iOS) may be hurt by this.

    Article on endgadget says T mobile just put out a F.A.Q. No iphone or other at&t phones. If I was on the laptop I would post the link.

    Yes, and if they don't smarten up and get some decent phones in their short term lineup, they'll be 3rd soon.

    I see that happening as well- but I'm not sure Verizon would want to take on that that challenge.

    I don't know about that, like stated before, VZW has something AT&T doesn't have, which is a HUGE game changer.. LTE.. It's 4G vs. 3.5G and that speed gives VZW the edge IMO..

    idk, what do you think?

    i dont get it either

    There may be less models of phones, but there will still be the same amount of phones out there, thus shouldn't hurt the software development. Instead of 15 android models with 2.2 totaling 1.5MIL units, there will be 8 android models with 2.2 totaling 1.5MIL units (hypothetical numbers, just to illustrate a point)

    I see it as good news for consumers, at least in one way. Perhaps some of the dead zones and call problems AT&T faced will be improved with the acquisition of T-Mobile's towers.

    Still can't truly compare with Verizon, I hope Verizon does something amazing to shut these guys up. Never liked AT&T Or T-Mobile.

    Real 4G Vs Fake 4G? Not to mention AT&T always lies on their commercials. (well used to, now they are the largest)
